Indigo Blu Elizabeth Bennett Wooden Hanging


I've made this wooden wall hanging using Indigo Blu stamps and Fresco Finish paints. The current Indigo Blu challenge is Backgrounds Galore, so I concentrated on the base of the hanging with lots of different paint colours, two different stencils with Grunge Paste, and the Indigo Blu Script stamp in different shades of ink to tone with the paint colours used. I highlighted the stencilling with Ice Fire Treasure Gold. I added the 'Pride and Prejudice' and the 'So Beautiful' wording from the Mr Darcy set.


I stamped the main image of Elizabeth Bennett which I painted with Fresco Finish paints and then painted a piece of card with Zesty Zing yellow paint and stamped just the flowers, which was a bit fiddly, and cut them out and added a little Smoked Paprika to the centres. To finish off I dotted some glue around the plaque and sprinkled with some tiny shimmery beads.
